Kirchzarten, Germany - USAC Development Camp
Pro Team

For the next three weeks I’ll be racing in Europe, based out of Kirchzarten, Germany, as a part of a USAC development camp.  First up is a Racer Bikes Cup (formerly Swiss Cup) in Winterthur, Switzerland.  This race will be my first experience joining an elite field in Europe, my only previous Euro races being Junior MTB Worlds in Les Gets, France (2004) and Livingo, Italy (2005), then U23 Worlds in Fort William, Scotland (2007). I’m hoping these few weeks of hard racing will help bring around my fitness and help me refocus on some goals for the second half of the season.  So far, my results haven’t shown much this season.  My spring school semester was the busiest I’ve experienced yet and juggling a number of responsibilities isn’t getting any easier.  After a week of recouperating in Boulder, CO (and sleeping 10+ hours a night!), I’m now two days into my Germany trip.  I’ll do my best to update with pictures because who wants to read blog posts without pictures?
